Categories: South Asia, India, Arts & Culture, Language

Manasa Pamaraju at Desicritics [1] states that many of the 22 official languages of India are losing the race to English or other dominant languages. The blogger comments: “what pains me is that that today’s generation doesn’t even know how to pronounce the language right. I have met scores of parents who say it very proudly that their children cannot speak their mother tongue.”
